12:04 am

12:05 am
but really it is up to the very capable jury. and -- and i am pleased with, with the result. a lot of people say well this brings so much closure. and it's not, you know, i am affect eed every day. i haven't stood in the shower in two plus years. and, a lot of survivors haven't. and we are still going through surgeries. we being the survivor community. you know, but i do think it is a milestone. i, myself, and others have been preparing for this trial for a very long time. over a year. and so in that case of the trial coming to an end, i feel like that closure is a really good closure to have to have the chapter closed in the trial phase is goodable. this will forever affect everyone's life that was involved. >> now, a woman that lost her right leg testified in the trial and spoke friday night to cnn's
12:06 am
erin burnett. >> you know there is no right answer. there is no wrong answer to it. it was definitely a heavy moment for -- for the thought of everything that, the survivors have gone through, especially more important the families of the deves ceased. it was kind of a heavy moment. i am surprised that it was the death penalty. but be it as it may, that's why i live here in america. the justice system has its way. and, and he was judged by a jury of his peers. >> clearly, ms. sdoia shaken. >> and another injured in the bombings, and attended the court proceedings at every day. >> i am sure at one point in his life he was a lovely, caring young man. what he turned into, obviously, was we know what he turned into. he turned into a monster. why did that happen? we'll never know.
12:07 am
my feelings on him are nothing but -- what can i say? >> now we won't know where tsaranev will stay while he is on death row until the judge formally sentenced him in court. that date has not yet been set. one option is the u.s. super max penitentiary in florence, colorado. that prison is home to unabomber ted kaczynski and shoe bomber richard reid. >> tojor development in the amtrak train derailment. federal investigators interviewed an conductor who heard an engineer on a commuter rail said the train had been shot at or hit by a rock. more on the latest development and the ongoing investigation. >> today, accident investigators

12:09 am
can see the train tilting, approximately 10 degrees to the right. and then the recording went blank. >> according to friends, bostian has a passion for trains and train safety adadvocate, followg a deadly crash in california, blamed on an engineer distracted by text messages. a post on a train enthusiast website, believed from bostian, "that's why it shouldn't take an act of congress to get industry to adopt common sense safety systems on their own." meantime we are hearing from em myrrh jaens crews who helped pull people from the wreckage. >> i saw a lot of people injured. a lot of head wounds. a lot of arment inearjuries. >> the officer was one of the
12:10 am
first to arrive after 911 calls flooded in. >> the guy was on the floor. broken leg. broken ankle. grabbed each other's hands to make a chair so he can sit down. then we carried him the whole way. >> now, as much as amtrak has questions to answer, so does brandon bostian, the 32-year-old at the controls of the train when it jumped the rails. his attorney says he doesn't remember much. he has been questioned by federal investigator whose say he was extremely cooperative. and now many of his friend and colleagues are speaking out about the type of person he is. and how much he loved his job. >> i sfopoke with him. he said he was in the incident. he could not remember much. he couldn't remember much. he said he had -- had some staples and some stitches and he was sore. he was in some pain. he couldn't really talk to me, obviously, because he was getting -- he was getting taken
12:11 am
care of in the er. >> have you ever seen him drinking? >> never. >> ever seen him too sleepy? texting, phone calls? >> no. >> never had his phone out. didn't matter what the situation was out. never had his phone out. >> let me ask you, what do you think happened? >> i honestly don't know. i believe something happened prior to -- to him getting to that curve. we all know what the speed limits are. it is not a mystery to us. again i have went up and done these rails with brandon hundreds of times. >> any body that has known bran dovenlt he loved trains. love might be an understatement. something he always talked about. something, you know, as a, 17, 18-year-old boy, he would come back from family vacations with souvenirs of, of subways, and the trains he took, and he wouldn't talk about the places he tackedlked about the trains.
12:12 am
>> interesting to note. u.s. safety authorities are in the process of implementing an ought matting speed control system on rail lines. that technology called positive train control was supposed to be in place by the end of 2015. the stretch of track where this crash occurred did not have it installed offs yet. u.k. rails meantime are operating a lower tech version of this kind of braking system. later in the show, phil black will explain exactly how it works. yes has taken control over government buildings from iraqi forces in ramadi. [ gunfire ] >> big push for the key city started thursday and friday's fighting left at least 47 iraqi security forces and more than two dozen civilians dead. a u.s. official says the situation there is very fluid. this map shows areas of syria and iraq that are currently under isis control. the areas in red. areas where militants enjoy significant freedom of movement,
12:13 am
those areas are in yellow. now, key areas under isis control including, raqqa in syria, and portions of northern iraq, mosul, the u.s. is expa dieting a weapons -- expediting a weapons shipment to help iraq. and for more on this isis offensive, we want to get the latest from our reporter in amman, jordan and joins me live via skype. if you give us context here. they seem to have been taken by surprise by this isis attack. and yet, hasn't isis made it clear that they wanted to take this city for months now? >> absolutely, paula. look at what has been going on in anbar province. where we saw isis emerge in iraq in 2014 last year in january. you saw isis come of in. take over.
12:14 am
and cities, saudi arabia, jordan, baghdad. so for the majority of the past year, isis has controlled pretty much almost all of anbar province. pockets of this province, some parts of ramadi have been under the control of government forces. as you mention we saw this latest offensive by isis taking place starting on thursday and going into friday with this wave of s of suicide bombings. they managed to take control of what they're determined to take control of. symbolic. what used to be provincial headquarters in ramadi, managed to raise the isis flag there. something they have been trying to do for months now. and government forces some allied sunni tribal forces have been pushing back isis to try to stop this advance. they're trying to get an update on the latest situation on the
12:15 am
ground right now. as you mentioned, u.s. officials saying it is fluid. the governor of anbar province, late last night. describing it as a very dire situation. saying that ramadi as a whole has not fallen yet. some parts of the province under control. very small parts of anbar under the control of government forces. but describing the situation theres very dire. very critical situation there. this is a very important province. paula, mentioned, bordering syria. isis determine to consolidate its control of anbar province. that would really give it a tighten grip on territory it controls all the way from the turkish syrian border through syria, and into anbar province, stretching all way to the western outskirts of baghdad. very important development that we are keeping our eye on, paula.
12:16 am
>> yeah, deaf nifinitely would them huge swaths. freedom of movement. the united states has been trying to help with air strikes. many surprised air strikes haven't been able to do more. despite the fact that people say iraqi forces aren't up to this challenge. why are the air strikes not having an effect in anbar. are they having an effect some where else? >> what we are seeing happening now, paula. underscores the limitations of the air power. and air campaign we have seen according to u.s. military numbers and figures we are seeing. they say more than 400 air strikes have taken place since the beginning of the air campaign last summer. in the ramadi and in the area in anbar province. it stopped the advance in the past where isis was moving freely in these large convoys taking over major cities.
12:17 am
if you look at what is going on in ramadi. population centers like ramadi are very difficult for air power to really tackle the isis challenge. you need support of the ground forces there. that has been very difficult and very complex situation there in anbar. sunni province. and government forces, shiia. air power alone cannot really, is not enough in the fight against isis as we hatch seen in anbar. >> yes, something you have been telling us. we see the effects of the lack of air strikes and the lack of ground power there in iraq. we know you will continue to be on top of this story from jordan. for us, thank you so much for the update. isis is fighting close to historic city in iraq. they have destroyed some of the fresh us archaeological sites in the country.
